This is open to interpretation, but based on our experience and the number of players we know at all levels, here is OUR definition. OPEN: Open players have excellent ball control skills. Passing, setting, hitting, digging, and even jump serving are very natural and virtually effortless at this level. Now the players playing this division will say its far from effortless; to the lower skilled players they make it LOOK effortless. AA/A: This division of players still have great ball control skills. You know the game, and you may be a great hitter, but the rest of your game isn't quite there yet when you compare it to the OPEN level players. If you are trying to rate yourself here's a suggestion: 90% of your float serves should be in, your passing should be better then 50%, you should be able to hand set with very minimal ball rotation, and you should be able to hit the ball down and in at least 80% of the time. BB/B: This division is for everyone else that knows how to play organized volleyball. Even though this is the lower level, these people still know the rules of the game and play on a regular basis, or have played on a regular basis at some point in their life. If you are the once or twice a year player that plays at your backyard family reunion, then you should consider being a spectator first and looking into your local parks & rec leagues to become familiar with organized volleyball.
